Edvectus recruits qualified/certified Primary, Elementary, Secondary, Middle and High School teachers from the following countries;
USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, United Kingdom, Ireland and South Africa.
Applicants must have at least a Bachelor’s Degree and teaching qualification such as a Post Graduate Certificate in Education, Masters in Education or Bachelors of Education. Our jobs are not teaching English as a Foreign Language, and a TEFL certificate alone is not sufficient teacher training.
All applicants must have qualified teacher status, at least two years post qualifying experience due to Ministry regulations and must be able and willing to work in a cultural 100% ESL learning environment. All elementary teachers must have a Bachelors of Education or a Bachelors degree with PGCE/teaching diploma and previous IB PYP experience is preferred. American Curriculum experience (common core preferred) is also valued, but those hailing from a student centred background will be warmly welcomed. Teachers should be able to demonstrate a strong academic background in content knowledge, be collaborative and collegial, value the use of data to drive instruction, be assessment literate, be skilled at differentiating and engaging students, be able to utilize effective instructional strategies and be technologically proficient. It is important to note that this is not a western expatriate schools and many students are local from the UAE.
Combining the US core standards curriculum with a delivery through the philosophy of IB without the scope and sequence, the school blends the best of both worlds of a traditional American approach of text books and regular testing and a more student centred perspective. The ultimate goal is to eventually attain IB world school status retaining the American element so students can graduate with a US diploma and if they meet with the criteria and IB diploma too. Advanced Placement course are also available.
